These are his people.

This weekend was Harry’s weekend to hang out with “his people” at the Canberra Model Railway Expo. 
It’s such a wonderful event and Harry was very much in his happy place. Jack tagged along with us on Saturday and was impressed for approximately 30 mins before declaring that that he was ready to go home. Six year olds...not exactly renown for their attention spans...but seriously dude...they’re TRAINS! Sheesh!
Still, he stuck with us until Harry was ready to go two hours later. There were so many different layouts to see and so many people to ask for advice on track construction and engine types. Harry is a great observer and his brain was absorbing a WHOLE LOT during the morning. We managed to squeeze in a miniature train ride on the way to the car too.

Today we left Jack at home with Daddy and spent half the day looking at it all again. But this time...oh, this time Harry’s dream came true when one of the lovely blokes from the Canberra Monaro N Scale Group asked him to take control of his favourite train...the XPT CountryLink Explorer. 

I was so immensely grateful for that made this proud mummy’s heart swell because I know that this experience will stay with Harry for a very long time and he will draw on it for comfort when he’s struggling. 
Gosh we left on such a high and full of inspiration to continue building up Harry’s HO scale collection.

Huge thanks to the Canberra Model Railway Club for another great event.
